TOUCHING THE SURFACE Book Launch Events

On October 30th, TOUCHING THE SURFACE’s official book birthday, I’m going to have a launch day challenge. Tweet, Facebook or email me a picture of TOUCHING THE SURFACE out in the wild and you’ll get a chance to win this…

Which is really this…

A silver origami crane necklace. I have one of my own and I’ve given one to my agent Michelle Wolfson and my editor Anica Rissi. I’ve been holding on to this one for the big day.

Of course I’ll be reminding you about the contest again right before the launch.

 

I have several wonderful book launch events planned and I’m hoping that if you’re nearby, you’ll be able to attend one.

****DUE TO HURRICANE SANDY, ASELLINA WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE THE NYC BOOK LAUNCH CELEBRATION ON 11/1/12.

WE WILL BE RESCHEDULING FOR THURSDAY NOVEMBER 8TH! HOPE YOU CAN STILL MAKE IT! SORRY FOR THE LAST MINUTE CHANGE. PLEASE PASS THE WORD ALONG.****

*The first event is a NYC Cocktail party on Thursday, November 1st November 8th at 7:00pm, thrown by my very wonderful husband–yes, I am the luckiest girl in the world. The information is HERE. Feel free to add yourself to the evite or if you’re having trouble, just contact me with your name and email and I’ll add you to the group.

*The second event is going to be held on Saturday, November 3rd at 2:00pm at the Poughkeepsie, NY Barnes & Noble. You can find out more about this event HERE. The Poughkeepsie Barnes & Noble is a fabulous bookstore and I am so excited to be launching my book there. This B&N is the site of my local SCBWI Shop Talk, the place where I began learning how to be a writer. It has so many wonderful writerly memories for me. It is also the closest bookstore to my home, so you know I’ve spent a lot of quality time there. This is my community bookstore and I can’t believe I’m going to get to share this day, surrounded by people who have known and loved me since I was just a little kid. Signing my books here will be a mind blowing experience.

*The third event is going to be held on Sunday, November 4th at 4:00pm at Oblong Books & Music in Rhinebeck, NY.

This is one of two very special indie bookstores in my area and I can’t freaking believe that I’m going to be the author at a Hudson Valley YA Society event!!! I love going to these events to eat cookies and drool on my favorite authors. I can’t tell you how many times my husband and my boys and I have attended these events and then talked the whole ride home in the car about how someday they might ask me to do a book signing. Surreal.

Oblong books is asking for an RSVP to the event and if you can make it, you can respond on Facebook or RSVP at Oblong.

 

If you can’t make any of the formal book launch events–I’m completely bummed–but Oblong is taking orders for SIGNED COPIES OF TOUCHING THE SURFACE. I’ll be signing them that very afternoon, so there is a really good chance that the book will have residual festiveness tucked between the pages. How awesome is that?

Oh, and before I forget–I’ll be activating my newsletter function really soon, so don’t forget to sign up at the bottom of any page of this website.

  1. NY 2017 SCBWI Conference Part 2

    February 18, 17

    I’m back for Part 2 of my NY 2017 SCBWI Conference Recap!!! And like these two guys, I’m a bit confused… (Scott Hammon and Justin Brancato) I can’t remember exactly when, during the conference a few of these pictures happened. So–I’m gonna go with it and just kick off with them. This is just a […]
